And down the stretch they come. The Reds enter the final month of the regular season in need of some wins in order to catch and pass the Pirates and Cardinals. They’ll get their chances this month as the Reds will meet those two for a combined 10 games of the 26 played this month. So the Reds control their own destiny for the most part.
Controlling your own destiny also involves you winning the games that aren’t against those two teams. That is what the Reds must do today against Colorado. Win this game and you guarantee yourself gaining a game on one of those two teams ahead of you.
College football kicked off yesterday, but it is the Reds that need to tighten up those chin straps and finish this thing off. Discuss the game here and cheer on your Redlegs to victory. Go Reds!
